Is it time to make a change? We can help you think it through.
A job for life is a rare thing – if it even still exists. You’ll probably move jobs a few times, and deal with changes within your role and company. You’ll learn new things, and could even end up in a career you’d never considered. Being adaptable will help you make the best of whatever twists and turns you face.
Stuck in a rut
If you think it’s time for a change, it helps to work out why you feel that way.
Are you unhappy or bored with the job itself? Is it the company you work for that you don’t like? Is there anything you can do to change things at work? Try talking to your boss about flexible hours, or picking up a new project. Ask about career progression opportunities if that’s what’s making you unhappy.
Give yourself time to make your decision.
